NC Wild Turkeys

Postby Vina8 » Fri Mar 26, 2010 10:49 am

We can't wait until Turkey season. All week we have been hearing a Tom courting in the woods behind our house. He's quite the playboy! Last year we often saw a flock of hens in the driveway and front yard. I have never eaten wild turkey, but look forward to trying it.

I'm going scouting this week. Riding in a carpool right now and just passed a turkey in strut in a field.

It's getting close.

It is drizzling out today, but it didn't keep the turkeys away! We had 7 turkeys in our front yard today, 3 toms and 4 hens. They were here a long time. I took some pictures from my bedroom window. Sorry it is not better quality for there was a screen and rain splattered window in the way. Click on the picture for a better view. Too bad it is not turkey season yet!

Getting up early Friday to listen for birds. Then going to visit some of our sights in the area for work. Back to the club for a walk in the afternoon. Follow that with a steak and a beer around the camp fire. Get up Sat am and listen for those goofy birds again.

Just 8 days away and I can't wait! Haven't seen any birds or much sign scouting so far this year. But I'm still anxious to hear that first gobble with a call in my hands.

I hope you have fun, M. If nothing else, the steak and beer around the campfire will be something to look forward to! We are hoping to shoot one, if not from the front porch, at least somewhere on our land.

Spent Friday and Saturday scouting. Saw four gobblers in two different places and heard plenty more including another right where I cleared out a spot for opening day the last time I was out. I heard that another member put up a blind in the same spot. :thumbdown:

Not sure if he'll be there opening day so might have to go with plan B. But had a bunch of fun and the weather was perfect.

You better hope I have a good day. Otherwise, I'll have to track down your trail camera and sit right in front of it to help control the turkey population on your land. I know they're there... :p
